BE A GOOD CITIZEN — COOPERATE 



Smoking and debris burning caused more than 50 
percent of the forest fires occurring in the slate of 
New Hampshire in 1955 — 235 fires out of a total of 
463 originated from these two sources. Lighted smok- 
ing material and matches thrown from moving vehicles 
along the highway or dropped by fishermen, hunters, 
hikers, berry and flower pickers accounted for 26 per- 
cent; debris burning in the wrong place or at the 
wrong time by those who failed to heed all pleas for 
safety or refused to recognize the logical, sensible rules 
and regulations set up under legislative authority gov- 
erning the use of fire in or near woodlands accounted 
for more than 24 percent. This is inexcusable. 

Everything possible is being done officially to remedy 
the situation. Since 1909 there has been a statute on 
our law books which requires everyone to secure writ- 
ten permission from the local forest fire warden before 
starting a fire in or near woodlands or where fire can 
be communicated to woodlands, unless the ground is 
covered with snow. A never ending program of educa- 
tional work is being carried on by your local warden 
and state officials to inform the general public both of 
the value and necessity of securing the required permit 
for such burning. Much progress has been made, but 
there are still many who fail or refuse to cooperate. 
The value of our permit system was definitely proven in 
this district during the 1955 calendar year. Local ward- 
ens issued 3,864 permits for debris burning fires. That's 
a lot of permits. The records show only 2 permit fires 
got out of control. This proves several things — while 
wardens were liberal in the issuance of fire permits, 
accommodating every applicant so far as possible, they 
were cautious, following closely directives outlining 
overall policy governing the issuance of burning per- 
mits and thoroughly instructing permit users. The 



48 

latter, too, fully appreciating their responsibility in 
using their permits, governed themselves accordingly. 
Result? Much burning done legally and safe. 

But what of the smokers? Despite all the efforts of 
those officially charged with the responsibility of pre- 
venting fires, too many were careless or thoughtless in 
disposing of smoking material and matches. Why? It is 
difficult to say. Autos are now equipped with ash trays. 
Why not use them. The crushing out of a cigar, ciga- 
rette and the complete extinguishment of matches be- 
fore being discarded is an easy chore. 

If the costly habits of the careless and indifferent 
smoker and debris burner could be overcome, more 
than half of our annual forest fires would be eliminated. 
Will YOU do YOUR share to bring this about? 

REMEMBER 

1. Get a written permit from your local warden be- 
fore starting your debris burning or camp fire. The 
law requires it. 

2. Make certain they are dead out before leaving 
them. 

3. Become a safe smoker by extinguishing smoking 
material and matches before discarding them.

During this period the District Nurse cared for the 
following: 

Acute and Non-Communicable 

Orthopedic 

Prenatal & Postnatal 

New Baby 

Office 

Health Service 

Adult 

Infant and Preschool 

Baby Office Conference 

There were 117 new and 220 repeat cases that were 
admitted to the nursing service and 59 new and 113 
repeat cases under health service. 

Twenty-five trips were made transporting patients to 
clinics, hospitals, and specialists. 

Toxoid Clinics in cooperation with the State Board 
of Health were held in March, April, May, and June. 
Dr. Archie Grevior and Dr. Frank Robinson alternated 
as attending physicians at these clinics with Joanna 
Carter, R. N., State Preschool Nurse assisting. A total 
of 101 received the triple Toxoid for Diphtheria, 
whooping cough and tetanus, which is given in grad- 
uated doses at least 4 weeks between treatments. There 
were 20 who completed the series. Twenty-six others 
received Booster hypos. The booster hypo is given as 
an added protection two years after the first toxoid 
treatments. 



55 



There were no clinics as were previously in the fall. 
Due to the number of polio cases in the state, it was 
considered inadvisable. 

Mrs. Lurline McCook, R.N., substituted for the 
District Nurse while she had her vacation. 

The school nurse, Miss Harriet Stone, and the Dis- 
trict Nurse bought, wrapped, and distributed toys in 
the two towns at Christmas. These were given through 
the kindness of the Rotary Club, Business and Profes- 
sional Womans Club, Teachers of both schools and in- 
dividuals. The Catholic Daughters aagin this year gave 
generous baskets of fruit, cookies, and candy to chil- 
dren. 

Many dinners again this year were given by the 
American Legion, the Elks, Odd Fellows, and Salva- 
tion Army. 

Once again I wish to acknowledge my sincere thanks 
and appreciation to the doctors, selectmen, District 
Nursing Boaid and townspeople for their friendly atti- 
tude, support and cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALICE M. FRENCH, R.N.

To the Inhabitants of Tilton and Northfield: 

We welcome this opportunity to report to you on 
the operation of the Tilton-Northfield Fire District 
for the past year. This report gives you a detailed state- 
ment of the Expenditures in all departments as shown 
by the records. 

The past year has been one of outstanding signifi- 
cance with respect to the very small number of fires 
within the Precinct. This excellent record we attribute 
to the fine co-operation of you citizens in abiding by the 
instructions given you by the members of the Fire De- 
partment during their yearly inspection. This goes to 
prove that if we all work diligently, and with good 
will toward the elimination of fire hazards, it all helps 
to make a safer community in which to live, and also 
in due time, will greatly assist in reducing insurance 
rates. 

Outside the Precinct we had two hazardous fire 
losses. One at the home of Guy Huckins in Northfield. 
It was through the outstanding work by the members 
of the Fire Department that the main house was saved. 
Once again it was proved that we have a Department 
capable of meeting any emergency, even with a water 
shortage. The second was at the home of Arthur Brown, 
also located in Northfield, and known as the Rand 
farm. When the Department arrived on the scene, the 
buildings were beyond any chance to save. The Brown 
family were not at home at the time, and lost all their 
worldly possessions, also some farm animals, and in 
addition a set of farm buildings. Once again, another 
old land mark has been erased from the list of old 
Homesteads, never to be rebuilt. 

The members of the Fire Department are to be con- 
gratulated on a most efficient job completed in their 
annual inspection throughout the Precinct. The num- 



59 

ber of criticisms reported were few compared to the 
number of properties inspected, and in most casts were 
corrected at the time of inspection. 

They also deserve a great deal of credit for their 
fine co-operation during the summer months in being 
present at the weekly fire drills. This meant giving of 
their time each Monday evening in order to be present. 
Their efforts, in this respect, has greatly assisted in 
bringing the members of each department up to date 
on the various duties necessary to promote the effective- 
ness of a well organized unit — "Out hats off to all 
you members." 

Our thanks go to the Tilton-Northfield Aqueduct 
Co. for the fine job done in painting the Hydrants. 
The color scheme is good and makes the Hydrants stand 
out noticeably throughout the Precinct. 

The Public Service Co. removed 3 - 1000 lumen and 
2 - 2500 lumen lights on West Main St. These were 
replaced with 5 - 11,000 lumen lights. The change has 
received very favorable comments, not only from the 
residents in the immediate area, but from outsiders 
coming into Town. 

It is the desire of your Firewards to increase the 
lighting in other sections of the Precinct, that greatly 
require immediate attention, for the protection of the 
general public. The benefit derived from good street 
lighting is most beneficial in comparison to the small 
additional cost involved. 

As we close the records of the past year, and begin 
the operations of a new year, we are greatly indebted to 
the members of the fire department for their loyalty and 
co-operation during 1955. 

And to you citizens we appreciate your response and 
prompt approval in providing the necessary financial 
assistance to maintain an efficient Fire Department. 



60 



We firewards pledge ourselves to give careful atten- 
tion to the function of your fire department, always 
conscious of the duties entrusted to us, for the best 
protection of your properties. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ROY A. JORDAN, 

H. HOWARD ALIEFF,

REPORT OF THE 
TILTON-NORTHFIELD SCHOOL BOARD 



The 1956-1957 proposed budget has been in process 
of preparation for considerable time because we wished 
to provide all the necessities for maintaining our high 
standards in both elementary and high schools without 
too much of a financial burden to the taxpayers in one 
year. 

Our proposed budget shows an approximate increase 
of $13,000. The greatest increase is in teachers' salaries 
with $11,000.00 in excess of last year. This represents 
an additional teacher for the elementary grades so that 
classrooms will not be overcrowded, salary increases for 
all teachers, and Tilton's share of the supervisory union 
for a helping teacher, and an additional nurse. 

The budget also includes a new roof for the Union 
Grammar School. The roof has been repaired aagin and 
again for several years. One classroom has leaks in 
several places in the ceiling with every rain. Three 
classrooms, the auditorium and the upper corridor need 
ceiling replacements because of the leaks over the years. 
Several rooms have special ceiling supports to keep the 
plaster from falling. 

We are also proposing a special article in the war- 
rant to renovate the Union Grammar School to gain 
three classrooms and eliminate the old open toilet 
rooms in the basement and place modern rest rooms 
on the first and second floors. This is the most econom- 
ical arrangement to gain space which will be needed in 
the next few years. The Union School alterations and 
the Tilton-Northfield High School will be completely 
paid for in 1958. 



74 



There has been a great deal of newspaper publicity 
to the recent statements of Lewis L. Strauss, Chairman 
of the Atomic Energy Commission that "the nation's 
high schools are not giving enough emphasis to physics, 
chemistry, geometry, or the physical sciences and less 
than half the nation's high schools now teach physics 
or chemistry." 

We are pleased to report that Tilton-Northfield High 
school has a program that covers four years of science, 
— general science, biology, physics, and chemistry; 
four years of mathematics, — elementary algebra, plane 
geometry, algebra 2, and advanced mathematics; three 
years of history, — civics, world history, and American 
history; two years of Latin and two years of French with 
a third year of each if pupils enroll; in addition to four 
year courses in agriculture, shop, home economics, and 
commerce. 

We wish to thank the Parent-Teacher Association for 
its cooperation with the School Board, teachers and 
staff. The Scholarship Fund and the work of the Room 
Mothers are of great assistance to the school. 

We thank the Golden Rule Farm for its contribution 
of equalization tuition for out of state pupils. The bal- 
ance of the available fund was used towards the pur- 
chase of bleachers. 

We wish to thank the Rotary Club, the American 
Legion, the Chamber of Commerce, the Golden Rule 
Farm, the Peabody Chapter, Order of Eastern Star and 
the large number of individuals who have made contri- 
butions that have resulted in a completion of the sur- 
face and seeding of the athletic field in back of the 
High School. 

We wish to thank the Journal-Transcript, and all 
other organizations and individuals who have contribu- 



75 



ted in many ways during the past school year for schol- 
arship funds, donations, gifts, and prizes for children of 
the Tilton-Northfield schools. 

We appreciate the many suggestions we have received 
from parents and citizens for the improvement of our 
schools. We are the ones chosen to represent you in our 
mutual purpose of the best schools for our children. 
We appreciate the support we have received from the 
voters and taxpayers. 

We suggest that you read the report of the Superin- 
tendent of Schools for the information presented for 
your schools. 

May we thank everyone who has contributed in any 
way to better schools by suggestions, assistance and en- 



couragement.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the Members of the School Board: 
Classroom Space 

The Tilton-Northfield Schools will face the need of 
additional classroom space during the next five years. 
The addition of the new elementary school actually 
gained only two rooms for additional pupils, since 
six of the new rooms were taken by two grades housed 
on the top floor auditorium, two grades from the corri- 
dors, and two sixth grades housed in the white barn 
and the high school. 

The private schools in Franklin and Laconia have 
reduced the number of pupils from Tilton because of 
overcrowding of their own schools. 

The school census clearly shows that there will be 
68 more pupils in school in September, 1956 than in 
September, 1955. 

The school census also shows that there will be 
approximately 209 more pupils in our schools in Sep- 
tember, 1960 than in September, 1955. 

The Union Grammar School could be renovated to 
take the open toilets from the basements and move 
them to the first and second floors, and gain three class- 
rooms in the present basement. This is the most eco- 
nomical proposition for the taxpayers, as it is less ex- 
pensive than an addition to the new building and will 
have the double value of additional classrooms and 
better health facilities. It will also save the educational 
time lost of pupils having to leave the first and second 
floors for the basements on the basement floor. 

The elementary schools will have to maintain one 
grade in September, 1956 in the top floor auditorium 
and one grade in September 1957 in the corridor or 
the white barn, — if additional space is not provided 
in regular classrooms.

Teaching Staff 

The 1956-57 budget calls for one additional teacher 
for the Union School so that grades may be maintained 
at a reasonable level for the best work ofthe teachers. 
School Supplies 

Tilton-Northfield continued to gain the advantage 
of low costs by bidding its general school supplies with 
the other four towns of Supervisory Union No. 59. 
Bids were also secured for school shop supplies, oil, 
painting, and all items where it was possible to secure 
bids. 

Finances 

The school district ended the 1954-1955 school year 
with all bills paid and some fuel supplies on hand. 



93 

Testing Program 

The Union School held its annual testing program 
with the grades above the national average and very 
notable improvement in reading results. The high 
school has continued its program of mid-year and final 
examinations to give the pupils experience for col- 
lege, civil service and armed forces examinations.

Helping Teacher 

Miss Esma Ford of Laconia was elected Helping 
Teacher by the Supervisory Union. Her chief duties 
will be to help teachers of the entire Union on problems 
in Curriculum, Methods, Discipline, Morale, and Pub- 



99 



lie Relations. She will have charge of the teaching pro- 
gram in all schools. She will work on special teaching 
aids for teachers, visual aid programs, and professional 
teachers meetings. The State of New Hampshire pays 
$2500 annually towards the salary of the Helping 
Teacher. 

New Foster Homes Bill 

The 1955 Legislature passed a new law which means 
that Tilton-Northfield will collect the state average 
costs for pupils living in foster homes and attending 
the local schools. The towns from which these pupils 
came will be responsible for tuition if they are New 
Hampshire residents. Out-of-state residents will have 
their tuition paid by the foster homes of their guardians. 

Building Aid Law 

A new law of the 1955 Legislature provides that Til- 
ton-Northfield will receive approximately 30 per cent 
for all principal payments on bonds outstanding for 
renovations or additions that increase classroom space. 

The School Board has held regular monthly meetings 
and many special meetings throughout the year on 
problems of finance, budgets, transportation, school 
bids, repairs and renovations, and school policies. 

1 wish to express my appreciation to the school board, 
principals, teachers, office workers, custodians, bus 
operators, cafeteria workers, and Parent-Teachers Asso- 
ciation for their excellent cooperation during the past 
year. The citizens, parents and taxpayers have sup- 
ported education with the finances to maintain and 
retain good schools for the children of the two com- 
munities. 

Cordially yours, 

GORDON L. FOX, 
February 6, 1956 Supt. of Schools
